32. Quite so!

Now let me say that just because I totally get what you're saying, does not mean I condone rMoney's despicable action decades ago!!! (this disclaimer for other posters who may jump off the conclusion cliff and miss the point)

The reason no cops pulled rMoney over back then was because the awareness was not forefront at that time. Perhaps a particular individual cop, who loved animals and was a bodhisathva (i.e. good samaritan, in the christian tradition) would have acted. Thanks to the attention focused on RichyRich's cruelty, and his casual attitude about it, the awareness has spread worldwide, and now, people will be more inclined to ACT.

Understanding that it was a different time back then does not in any way equate to approval! Attitudes evolve over time (and devolve...and evolve again. That's the nature of life through eternities)

We condemn and are horrified by the tortures of the middle ages but when we say that we understand it was a different age and a whole different world back then, that doesn't mean we approve of the practices. It means we realize and appreciate the evolution of ethical thinking.
